21-Month-Old Girl Hit by Mom's Car Expected to be OK

A Lincoln toddler who suffered life-threatening injuries when she was hit by her mother's car is expected to survive.

Jim Schmersal said his 21-month-old granddaughter, Aubree
Cummins, suffered a bruised lung, lacerated liver and skull fracture in Wednesday's accident but she's going to be OK. She's in an Omaha hospital.

Schmersal says Aubree was hit by the car and dragged down the driveway as her mother, Jami Marcano, rushed to a baseball game. He says Marcano put Aubree in the car and went back inside for a moment, during which Aubree got out of the vehicle. When Marcano got behind the wheel, Schmersal says, she didn't realize Aubree had gotten out of the car and struck her.
